Orangey pink in colour, this wine smells of wild strawberries and flowers. Dry, crisp and fresh it has plenty of red fruit flavours; red currants and cherries, balanced by a fine palate structure. It is savoury in style with a mineral backbone.
“Vino di Anna’s” second Rosato. In 2019, organically grown grapes were hand-harvested from two vineyards to make this wine. 70% of the cuvee was made from our vineyard located in the contrada “Tartaraci”, at 1000 metres of altitude, on the NW slopes of Mt Etna. 30% comes from old Nerello Mascalese bush vines, from our spectacular 110 yr old, red pomace vineyard, located in Contrada Monte Pomiciaro, near Linguaglossa.
The grapes from the “Tartaraci vineyard” were harvested on the 17th October 2019. The vines are 70 year old bush vines of Nerello Mascalese, Alicante (Grenache) and Grenanico. The white grapes were picked at the same time as the red grapes.
